Typical of Tokyo's second wave of cat cafes, Temari no Ouchi strives to create a destination "relaxation space" rather than just a place to play with cats for thirty minutes. Kick back with an imported beer or original cocktail, or choose from a range of herbal teas and coffee-based drinks. There's also an extensive menu of desserts, light snacks (popcorn shrimp, sausages), and full meals (keema curry, Hawaiian loco moco).

The spacious, cartoonishly decorated main playroom provides ample seating for dozens of visitors, and incorporates numerous perches, nooks and crannies for the seventeen resident cats to prowl.

Weekday evenings are a good time to visit, as there's a flurry of feline activity when feeding time starts at six-thirty. Free WiFi is available.
